PREFACE. 



The preparation of a Genealogical Record of the Barber 
Family has been delayed so long that much valuable data 
has been lost during the two centuries which have elapsed 
since ROBERT BARBER came to America. The object of 
this book is the collection and permanent preservation of what 
material is still procurable. It is not designed for general 
circulation, as the record is presumably of interest only to 
those who are directly concerned. The work was commenced 
by my father, the late William E. Barber, of West Chester, 
Pa., and when, at his death, the unfinished " tree" came into 
my hands, I determined to complete the genealogy, so far as 
the aid of the various branches of the family might be 
enlisted. I believe no similar work has ever yet been pub- 
lished which will be found to be absolutely complete. The 
difficulties encountered in such an enterprise are known only 
to those who have had practical experience in this direction, 
and the few gaps or omissions which occur herein must be 
attributed mainly to the lack of interest on the part of those 
who alone could have furnished the full information desired. 

I beg to acknowledge my indebtedness to all who have fur- 
nished the records of their respective branches, but I desire 
particularly to express the deep sense of obligation I am 
under to Lieut.-Colonel Samuel Wright, Mr. Geo. W. Halde- 
man, Samuel Evans, Esquire, Mrs. Anna E. Shoch and 

vu 



Vlll PREFACE. 

Mrs. Anne B. Essick, of Columbia, Pa. ; to Mr. Henry S. Bar- 
ber, of Freeport, 111. ; to Mr. John V. Barber, of Mifflinburgh, 
Pa. ; to Mr. John A. Dicks, of Natchez, Miss. ; to Mr. Robert 
H. Dicks, of Dayton, Ohio, and to Gilbert Cope, Genealogist, 
of AYest Chester, Pa., for the valuable assistance they have 
rendered me, in placing at my command all data which they 
possessed relating to the family history. The Robert and 
Thomas Barber branches, of Buffalo Valley, have been kindly 
furnished, for the greater part, by Mr, Henry S. Barber, from 
the manuscript record prepared by him in conjunction with 
the late William Wright, of Freeport, 111. That I have been 
enabled to produce the tolerably complete record which will 
be found in the pages that follow, is owing, in great measure, 
to the interest they have manifested in ray labors. 

I beg to extend my thanks, also, to the proprietor of the 
Columbia Spy for the use of the portraits of Mr. George W. 
Haldeman and Mr. Henry H. Houston, which first appeared 
in the issues of that paper commemorating the centennial anni- 
versary of the founding of that borough. 

The earlier history of the family, as here given, is probably 
as full and complete as it is possible, at this late day, to 
make it. 

I have to request, in conclusion, that members of the family 
advise me of any errors or omissions which they may discover 
in this edition, and also that they promptly notify me here- 
after of all births, marriages and deaths within the family, 
which may come to their notice, in order that I may be enabled 
to perfect and continue the record, with a view to publishing 

a larger edition at some future time.

THE 



BARBER FAMII.Y IN THE UNITED STATES. 



Of the several stocks of the Barber family which came to 
America from Great Britain, this volume has to deal only 
with the descendants of Robert Barber, of Lancaster Co., Pa., 
whose ancestry, it is generally supposed, belonged to York- 
shire, England. It has not been found possible to trace the 
pedigree back of the father of Robert, whose name was John. 

There are several distinct families of this name in the 
United States. The Barbour family of Virginia, according 
to Mr. R. A. Brock, of Richmond, claim to be of the lineage 
of John Barbour, one of the earliest Scotch poets and his- 
torians, and Arch-Deacon of Aberdeen in 1357, who died in 
1396. Some of this family settled in Virginia as early as 
1651, but no connection can be traced to the Yorkshire stock. 
The spelling of the name in the earlier records of Virginia 
was Barber. Another family of this name went to New Jer- 
sey, and a third settled in Rhode Island, at King's Town, 
previous to 1687. In the Public Records of Bucks Co., Pa., 
mention is made of one "John Barber and Elizabeth his^ 
wife, eldest daughter of John Songhurst of Shipley, County 
of Sussex, England," from list of arrivals with Wm. Penn, 
in 1682. The will of this John Barber is recorded in Phila- 
delphia.^ It was written on board the " Welcome,'" " now going

for Pennsylvania," dated 7th mo. 20th, 1682, and in it allu- 
sion is made to a brother Edward, and sisters Mary, Sarah 
and Hannah, and to his wife Elizabeth, then with child. 
According to an account of lands in Pennsylvania granted by 
Penn to several purchasers within the kingdom of England, 
Ireland and Scotland,^ John Barber received 250, and sub- 
sequently 2500, and John Songhurst 1250 (presumably acres). 
The former was evidently coming out to take up his grant, 
and is believed to have died on the voyage, or soon after his 
arrival. No connection between this family and the Lan- 
caster County branch, however, can be traced. 

A fifth family of the same name came to America from 
Scotland. There were three brothers — James, who settled in 
New York, and David and John, who went to Centre County, 
Pa. Judge John Barber, the last named, with Judge Potter, 
held the first court in Bellefonte, in 1800. 

Of the descendants of Robert Barber, of Lancaster Co., 
Pa., one branch went to Buflfalo Valley, Northumberland 
Co., Pa. (now Union), about 1785, and from there a colony 
migrated to Stephenson Co., 111., in the year 1835.

GENEALOGY. 11 



ROBERT BARBAR, OF CHESTER, PA. 

Some time previous to the year 1688, ROBERT 
BARBAR, a cordwainer, came, it is supposed, from York- 
shire, England,^ and settled in the neighborhood of Chester, Pa. 
From what part of Yorkshire he came, or what was his history 
previous to his arrival in America cannot be ascertained. 
Neither is it known exactly when he left England, but it 
appears that he reached the banks of the Delaware about the 
year 1687. He was a member of the Society of Friends, and 
soon became prominent in Chester Meeting. The earliest 
record we are able to find of him is in the minutes of a Quar- 
terly Meeting, held at Walter Faucit's house, in Chester, on 
the 6th of 12th month, 1687. His name occurs frequently in 
the early minutes and records of Friends' ' Meetings, from 
which the following extracts are made : " Att a monthly 
meeting att Walter Faucit y*" 5th of y'' 1st m" 1688 Agreed 
that Bartholomew Copeck and Robert Barber speak to Josiah 
Taylor that hee comes to the next monthly meeting and con- 
demn his seting up his Paper." * 

At the marriage of Benjamin Mendenhall, of Concord, 
wheelwright, and Ann Pennell, which occurred on the 17th 
day of 2d mo., 1689, he was one of the witnesses present, and 
signed his name Robert Barbar. ^ 

He was one of the committee appointed to supervise the 
building of the first meeting house in Chester, as appears from 
the following extraat from minutes of Chester Meeting, under 
date of 1st mo. 5th, 1693-4 :— 

"This meeting appoints John Simcocke, Randall Vernon, 

3 The name Barber is common in Yorkshire to-day, but all efforts to trace 
Robert Barbar's ancestry have been futile. 

4 See Minutes of Chester Meeting, Media, Delaware Co., Pa. 

^ See Records of Concord Meeting, in the Historical Soc. of Penna.

and Caleb Pusey in order to make up ye accounts w''*' y"" con- 
cerning y^ meeting house at Chester, and also to receive y® 
Deed of y^ Land the S*^ house stands upon, and give an ac- 
count thereof to the next monthly meeting, and also to bring 
ye S' Deed." ^ - 

He was married to Hannah Ogden in 1690, as is shown by 
the following, from Minutes of Chester Meeting : — 

" Att a monthly meeting att Walter Faucits y^ IS^*" of y^ 
8'^ mo. 1690 Robert Barber and Hannah Ogden boath Be- 
longing to this mo : meeting Layd their intentions of marriage 
before this meeting being the first time thee meeing orders

found cleare concerning them they were Left to their 
Liberty to accomplish their marriage according to the Order 
of Truth." 

He was a taxable in the township of Chester in 1693, when 
he appears to have paid the sum of 2s. 9d.'^ For a number 
of years he carried on his trade and cultivated the land 
which he purchased from time to time, from David Lloyd, of 
Philadelphia, and others. From the former he bought, 10th 
mo. 13th, 1693,a piece of land in Chester, "for the consideration 
often Pounds currant Silver Money of the said Province,"^ 
and various other deeds of property show that he became pos-

HOUSE BUILT BY ROBERT BARBAR, IN CHESTER, PA., ABOUT 1699. 

Now owned by Isaiah H. Mirkil,

sessed, in a few years, of considerable land on Crum Creek 
and adjoining the town of Chester. David Lloyd conveyed 
to Robert Barbar, March 15th, 169f, forty feet of ground 
in consideration of the payment of £10,'' and it was either 
on this lot or the one mentioned above that the latter erected 
a substantial brick dwelling, a portion of which is still stand- 
ing, on the northeast corner of Second Street and Edgmont 
Ave., adjoining the present Edgmont House, in the city of 
Chester, Pa. 

" The house was an imposing one in its day. The pent-roof 
over the second-story window still remains, although the porch, 
which formerly projected out some distance on -the sidewalk, 
has been removed. It has two doors; the eastern one leading 
into the parlor, and the western door into the hall-way, a 
room of the same size as the one on the opposite side, and in 
this apartment the staircase ascended to the rooms above. 
Back of this was the sitting-room, while in the rear of the 
parlor was a dining-room. The fire-places and hearths in 
the hall-room and the parlor were laid in blue tiles, present- 
ing scenes from Scriptural history, and in the chambers 
above, on each side of the fire-places, were large closets, simi- 
lar to those in most dwellings built at that period." ^'^ It is 
clain^ed that in this house, in the northwest room of the first 
floor, the wounded foot of General Lafayette was dressed, 
after the battle of Brandywine. 

The widow of Robert Barbar (who, after the death of 
the latter, married William Hudson), having lost her second 
husband, " on Nov. 19th, 1743, as Hannah Hudson, conveyed 
her life estate to Robert Barber (nephew), thus vesting in 
him the title absolutely. The latter, and Hannah his wife, 
then residing in Hempfield, Lancaster County, in considera- 
tion of ten shillings and ' the love and natural aflfection they

bear unto their son,' on August 11, 1747, conveyed the 
premises and a tract of six acres and other lots in Chester, to 
John Barber," ^^ who afterwards sold the property to Peter 
Dicks. ^'^ The house subsequently passed through several 
hands. In 1842, Thomas Robinson purchased it and in 
making alterations he had the old fire-places torn out, and the 
antique tiles were thrown into the street and carried off by 
children. In 1866 it was bought by Isaiah H. Mirkil, who 
still owns it. The only alterations he made to it were the 
addition of two dormer windows, and the renewal of the 
roof. 

It has been stated in several publications that Robert Bar- 
ber, the nephew, had led a sea-faring life and was at one time 
a prisoner in France, but this is an error ; the statement 
applied to Robert Barbar the uncle. The true facts in the 
case are as follows : David Lloyd, Speaker of the Assembly, 
forwarded his notorious " Remonstrance," dated 26th of 
6th mo. 1704, together with a letter, to William Penn, by 
the hand of his friend Robert Barbar, who sailed in the brig- 
antine commanded by John Guy, to New York. On the 
voyage across the ocean Robert Barbar was taken by a cruiser, 
and carried to France and thrown into prison. The nature 
of these papers was not known to the bearer, as he was 
induced to believe that they were official documents of import- 
ance from the Assembly. ^^ How long he was detained in France 
does not appear, but his imprisonment could not have been of 
long duration, as, at a Council held in Philadelphia on March 
19th, 170f, he was appointed one of five persons to survey

Chester, 1883, p. 121, et seq. (See, also, Deed Book G, p. 277, Chester Co. 
Court Records.) 

12 By a release dated Nov. 5th, 1747, "John Barber and Mary his wife ye 
Grantors named therein," this property was conveyed to Peter Dicks for the 
consideration of £160 (see Book G, p. 302, Court Records, West Chester, Pa.)

and lay out the Queen's Road from Darby " to answer the 
bridge on Chester Creek." ^* 

Robert Barbar died without issue in Chester in the year 
1709, probably in September, as his will was probated on 
October 2d of. that year. By its provisions much of his prop- 
erty was left to a nephew, Robert Barber, son of his brother 
John, who came from England sometime between 1690 and 
1708, probably in 1099,^^ and letters of administration were 
granted to Hannah his wife. The latter soon afterward 
married William Hudson, of Chester, as appears in a deed 
from James Barber (cousin of Robert, the uncle), to David 
Lloyd, dated March 18th, 1711,^^ wherein she is described as 
" Hannah, the now wife of William Hudson," conveying 
lands fronting on the river Delaware and Crura Creek, form- 
erly belonging to Robert Barbar, to said Lloyd.

16 THE BARBEK FAMILY. 



JAMES BARBAR, OF CHESTER, PA. 

As is shown in the will of Robert Barbar, his cousin 
JAMES BARBAR, who came to America between 1699 
and 1705, resided with him in Chester. To the latter w^as 
devised the plantation at Crum Creek, which was bought of 
Walter Faucit's executrix, to hold in trust, the rents to go 
to Hannah, the wafe of Robert Barbar, until the said James 
should marry, in which event it was to go to the latter or his 
heirs. In case James Barbar had no issue, the property was 
to revert to Robert Barber, nephew of the testator. James 
Barbar was a taxable in Chester in the year 1715, when he 
was taxed Is. Sd., and continued to hold property until the 
time of his death. On March 18th, 1711, he conveyed to 
David Lloyd ninety-five acres in Ridley township, on which 
the former was then living, for £80, subject to the annual 
rental of £3 15s., wdiich was to be paid to Hannah, then the 
wife of William Hudson, according to the terms of Robert 
Barbar's will.^' 

A lot situated on the north side of Second St., west of 
Market St., in the city of Chester, was conveyed by David 
Lloyd, James Lowms and Susanna his wife, to James Barbar, 
on Nov. 27th, 1712. On this ground the latter built the 
brick house, which was until recently used as a bottling 
establishment and restaurant, in which he resided until 1732. 
It had a pent roof extending over the window of the first 
story. 

James Barbar m., about 1711 or '12, Susanna Richards, of 
Aston. He d. 173|, and letters of administration were granted 
to Thomas Hayward, at Chester, on Feb. 8th of that year.

18 THE BARBER FAMILY. 



ROBERT BARBER, OF COLUMBIA, PA. 

(i) I. ROBERT BARBER, the head of the Lancaster 
County branch, was the second sun of John Barber, of York- 
shire, England, and came to America to join his uncle, Robert 
Barbar, of Chester, Pa., about the year 1699,"^ as an appren- 
tice at the trade of shoeraaking. At the death of the uncle, 
in 1708, the nephew inherited a considerable portion of the 
estate (see will of Robert Barbar in Appendix), and soon took 
his relative's place in public and religious affairs. 

(2) He married, 5th month, 17th, 1718, Hannah, daughter 
of William Tidmarsh. According to the records of Chester 
Meeting (Certificates of Marriage, Vol. 9, p. 46), the follow- 
ing relatives of the bride and groom were present : James 
Barbar (his father's cousin), William Tidmarsh, Rose Tid- 
marsh and Sarah Tidmarsh. 

Robert Barber seems to have entered actively into politics 
at an early age. At a Council held at Philadelphia, Oct. 3d, 
1719, which was presided over by the Honourable William 
Keith, Esq., Governeur, to receive the returns of an election 
for sheriff and coroner, " Nicholas Fairlamb and Robert 
Barber being returned for the office of sheriff, Nicholas Fair- 
lamb is appointed." Robert's defeat does not seem to have 
discouraged him, for we find him soon after running for the 
office of coroner, and at a Council held at Philadelphia on 
Oct 4th, 1721, he was declared elected coroner of the county 
of Chester. 

In 1724 he was elected a member of the Board of Assessors 



21 It is supposed that Robert Barber came to America with the children 
of Mrs. Williams, a sister of Hannah Ogden, reaching Cliester in the 3d 
month, 1G99, their passage being paid by Robert Barbar, the uncle. The 
records, however, dn not show this. Of these children, three were bound to 
Robert Barbar. The fourth was bound to David Ogden. 




PLAN OF THE ROBERT BARBER PURCHASE ON THE SUSQUEHANNA. 
Novo embraced within the limits of Columbia, Pa. 



GENEALOGY. 19 

of Chester County, and it was while acting in this capacity, 
and on duty in Conestoga township, that he discovered the 
land on the Susquehanna, which he afterward purchased. In 
the year 1726 he took up 500 acres of land on the eastern 
bank of the river, above where the town of Columbia now 
stands. This tract was conveyed to him by purchase, on 
August 19th, 1726, by Jeremiah Langhorne, agent of the 
proprietors. The title runs — 

Wm. Penn to George Beale, of Surrey, England, 17-18 of 
11th mo., 1701. 

George Beale to Jeremiah Langhorne, 17-18 Oct., 1718. 

Jeremiah Langhorne to Robert Barber, 19-20 Aug., 1726. 

Under date of August 30-31 , by lease and release, Robert 
Barber conveyed to Susanna Wright, at Chester, 100 acres ; 
and by similar instruments, September 20th, to John Wright, 
150 acres of this tract. Samuel Blunston purchased, August 
23d, 1726, from James Logan, 300 acres adjoining the above- 
mentioned 500 acres, and subsequently, from the same, under 
date of January 10th, 1733, 300 acres, to which he afterward 
added, by Patent, June 2d, 1741, 225 acres purchased from 
the Penns, bringing his lands to the Chicques Hills, as stated 
in Miss Barber's memoirs.'""^ John Wright and Samuel 
Blunston left Chester and Darby for Conestoga, in order to 
begin a settlement at Shawanah town on Susquehanna, upon 
the 12th day of September, 1726. The tradition is that 
Robert Barber preceded them and selected the site. They 
were all members of the Society of Friends. None of them 
seem to have settled permanently with their families upon 
this land until a year or so later. The exact date of Robert 
Barber's return to the Susquehanna is not known, but he 
probably left Chester with his family some time in the year 
1728. He and his wife were present at Chester Monthly 
Meeting, 6th month, 28th, 1727, as representatives from 

22 See Appendix D. 



20 THE BARBER FAMILY. 

Chester Preparative Meetiog. At a moDthly meeting held 
1st month 25th, 1728, at Providence meeting house, the 
records of Chester Meeting show that " Robert Barber being 
about to Remove himself and family to Conastogo Requests a 
Certificate to Newgarden monthly meeting on that account." 
The certificate was granted at next meeting, held 2d month 
29th, 1728. 

The Barbers do not seem to have availed themselves of this 
certificate, however, and did not connect themselves with any 
meeting in Lancaster County during the lifetime of Robert. 
On the 28th of 3d month, 1733, Chester Monthly Meeting 
" being informed by a member of Newgarden Monthly Meet- 
ing that Robert Barber still neglects to deliver his Certificate 
to that meeting which he received from this several years 
ago although he hath formerly been advised thereto, Jacob 
Howell and Samuel Levis Jn' are apointed to write to him 
again and lay the ill consequence of the neglect thereof before 
him." The committee wrote to him, but the result does not 
appear ia the records. At that time New Garden Monthly 
Meeting included the territory which in 1737 was set apart 
for Sadsbury Monthly Meeting. The New Garden records 
do not contain anything about the Barber family. In con- 
sequence of this neglect on the part of Robert Barber, the 
dates of birth of the children born in Lancaster County 
are not found in the records of any of the monthly meet- 
ings, and it has not been found possible to procure them 
elsewhere. 

Just below where Columbia now stands, Robert Barber 
built his house, near the present residence of Mr. Jacob C. 
Stoner, but the old building has long since been torn down. 
The old log prison stood about fifty feet in front of where Mr. 
Stoner's house now stands. He continued in politics for several 
years, and at a council held at Philadel})hia, on May 8th, 
1729, he was appointed first sheriff* of Lancaster County, 
after its erection, and his commission was ordered to be pre- 



GENEALOGY. 21 

pared. At a council held at the same place, on Oct. 4th, 
1729, he was reappointed sheriff. He was not a candi- 
date for reelection the following year, as Lancaster had 
been made the county seat, much to his disappointment ; 
and he was succeeded by John Galbraith of Donegal, on 
Oct. 3d, 1730. 

Robert Barber was one of seven persons appointed to view 
and layout a road from Lancaster to the division line between 
the counties of Chester and Lancaster, at a council held at 
Philadelphia, Jan. 29th, 1730. In 1740 he was elected Com- 
missioner of Lancaster County. He was prominent in Cres- 
sap's war, and though he did not bear arms he was active in 
the interest of the Penns. He was for many years amongst the 
foremost men of Lancaster County in all public enterprises, 
but gradually went out of notice, and devoted the latter years 
of his life to the support of his large family. 

Robert Barber died at Columbia, in September, 1749, aged 
about 57. He was buried in a part of the old Columbia 
cemetery which was called in early days the " Brick Grave- 
yard," because it was enclosed by a wall, the bricks of which 
were brought from England. The Barbers being Friends, 
their graves were unmarked, and now all traces of them are 
lost. Sheriff Barber died intestate, and letters of administra- 
tion were taken out Oct. 6th, 1749, by his widow,-^ who, with 
the children, had entered into an agreement to divide the real 
estate, under date of Sept. 17th, 17-19. 

No portrait of Robert Barber seems to be in existence, but 
his signature and seal are here reproduced from an old docu- 

23 At a monthly meeting of Sadsbury, held at Lampeter 3d of 3d mo., 1755, 
" Widdow Barber jiroduced a certificate from Providence bearing date the 29th 
of ye 2™o 1728 Recommending her in unity, and its Rec^, 'Ihe Widdow Bar- 
ber's Children Requests to come under care of Friends." At a monthly meet-

34 THE BARBER FAMILY. 



SECOND BRANCH. 

(183) 11. 2. JOHN BARBER, eldest son of Robert and Han- 
nah Tidmarsh Barber, was b. in Chester, Pa., 8th mo. 

13th, 1720. He m. Mary , previous to Nov. 5th, 

1747, as appears in a release of that date, -^ in which 
" John Barber and Mary, his wife " are the grantors 
named therein. 

By a quit-claim deed dated Aug. 11th, 1747, " betw^een 
Robert Barber of the township of Hempfield in y® 
County of Lancaster and Province of Pennsylvania, 
Cordwainer, and Hannah his wife of the one part and 
John Barber of the township of Hallam in the County 
and Province afs"^ Yeoman oldest son and heir at law 
of the s'^ Robert Barber," -^ the old Barber mansion 
in Chester was conveyed to John, who shortly after 
sold the property to one Peter Dicks. At his father's 
death John received 50 acres on east end of tract near 
Columbia, Pa. 

Very little is known of this son, but according to the 
narrative of Miss Sarah Barber, he is supposed to have 
been killed by Indians near the present site of Pitts- 
burgh, where he had gone to trade in furs. This has 
become a family tradition, but whether true or not, we 
have nov7 no means of ascertaining. Samuel Evans, 
Esq., of Columbia, has recently discovered, through 
an old document in the Register's Office at Lancaster, 
that John Barber died in the year 1759 ; Jacob Furry 
and Samuel Bethel were the appraisers."'' By a quit-

claim deed dated June 7th, 1768, Mary, ^'^ the widow 
of John, released her dower to Hannah Barber, Ad- 
ministratrix of Robert Barber, deceased, for a con- 
sideration of £37. In the division of the personal 
property of the latter, made by order of the Orphans' 
Court in 1769, it is stated that John, Thomas and 
Elizabeth Barber, miiior children, died intestate, under 
age, unmarried and without issue, a manifest error, so 
far, at least, as applied to John, who was married and 
twenty-nine years old when his father died in 1749. 
It is believed that John left no issue.

Hannah Tidmarsh Barber, was b. in Chester, Pa., 
10th mo. 10th, 1722; m., 9th mo. 26th, 1746, 
Sarah ,-^ dr. of Samuel and Elizabeth Wright Taylor, 
of Tinicum Island, Pa., who was b. 12th mo. 3d, 1729. 
He was first lieut. of the first company formed in 
Hempfield township, Lancaster Co., in 1775, of which 
his brother James was captain, his brother Samuel was 
second lieut. and his son John was a private. He took 
the oath of allegiance to the State of Pennsylvania in 
H. township July 1st, 1777. He received 62 acres of 
ground from his mother on Oct. 14th, 1761, according 
to an arrangement made by his father during his life- 
time. He built the brick house, which is still standing 
in Columbia, on the same plot of ground on which his 
father's house formerly stood. The bricks in the house 
were probably brought from England. The woodwork 
w^as mainly oak, as stated in Miss Barber's Memoir, 
in Appendix. This was erected previous to the year 
1763, as it was here that the Paxton boys stopped on 
the morning after murdering the Indians.^' The struc- 
ture is now occupied as an office by the Susquehanna 
Iron Co., and by the Superintendent as a dwelling. 



^^ At a Monthly Meeting of Sadsbury held at Sadsbury the 6th of 8th mo., 
1746, " Robert Barber and Sai*ah Taylour, Daughter of Samuel Taylour, both 
of Hempfield, appeared in this meeting it being The First time, and Declared

HOUSE BUILT BY ROBERT BARBER (185), IN COLUMBIA, PA., ABOUT 

THE YEAR 1761. 



Now oivned by the Susquehanna Iron Co. 



GENEALOGY. 37 

The main portion of the building is as it was 125 years 
ago. The projecting roof running around between the 
two stories has been removed and other changes have 
been made in recent years, such as the addition of a 
porch in front and a kitchen at one side in the rear. 
The old-style doors and window sashes have also been 
replaced by modern ones. Robert Barber d. Oct. 4th, 
1782. She d. Oct. 6th, 1793.

(i9i) III. 4. Robert, eldest son of Robert and Sarah 
Taylor Barber, was b. in Columbia, Pa., Aug. 
28th, 1751 ; m., Sept, 23d, 1775, Sarah, dr. of 
Dr. Samuel and Mary Bethel Boude, b. in Co- 
lumbia, May 19th, 1754. He took the oath of 
allegiance to the State of Pennsylvania in Hempfield 
township, July 1st, 1777. In company with his 
brother Thomas, he moved to Northumberland Co. 
(now^ Union), Pa., in 1785, in which year he was 
taxed on four horses, two cows and 580 acres of land. 
It appears that the subject of this sketch became 
possessed of property in Northumberland Co. some 
thirteen years before he left Columbia to settle per- 
manently in Buffalo Valley. It is supposed that the 
land was purchased for him and his brothers, Thomas 
and John, by their father. "In the fall (of 1772) 
Robert Barber, Esquire, built the first house on the 
White Springs tract of. which we have any knowl- 
edge, as he recites in a lease dated 9th August, 1773, 
to John Scott, that he leases him the house he had 



38 THE BARBER FAMILY. 

built last fall at the head of White Springs for seven 
years. It was on the Edward Lee warrantee, which 
Barber had purchased, in August, from Reuben 
Haines." ^^ This old log house is still standing, but 
it has been moved about one hundred yards from its 
original position, and the logs have been covered 
with weather-boards within the recollection of some 
of the family now living. It was about 20 by 25 
feet in dimensions, the large stone chimney occupy- 
ing nearly the entire width of one end. The struc- 
ture is now owned by Benjamin Chambers, who 
bought it after the death of the Misses Eleanor and 
Elizabeth Barber, who had a life interest in it. 

In 1791, Robert Barl3er built a sawmill on his 
farm on White Spring Run. In 1797, he built a 
gristmill on the same stream. In 1805 and '6, in 
partnership with Solomon Heise, of Columbia, he 
built the largest flouring mill in the county, on 
Penn's Creek, and also a sawmill. He served as 
magistrate many years, having been commissioned 
Justice of the Peace for Buffalo township, Nov. 29th, 
1792. He occupied the same farm 56 years. The 
land is now owned by his grandchildren, the Barbers 
and Chambers. Esquire Barber was a man of great 
force of character, and exercised a strong influence 
among the first settlers. He d. in Union Co., Kov. 
27th, 1841. She d. May 25th, 1818.

Pa. He married Elizabeth, dr. of William Wright,

his mother 40 acres of land, on April 19th, 1770, ac- 
cording to an arrangement made by his father before 
he died. He was Captain of the first company of 
Hempfield township in 1775. He became a Captain 
in Colonel Bartram Galbraith's Battalion in 1776, and

APPENDIX 0. 



Catharine Klinesmith was a daughter of Baltzer Kline- 
smith, a soldier of the Revolution, who was killed by the 
Indians in 1780. The account of this outrage, as given in 
Linn's Annals of Buffalo Valley, p. 189, differs somewhat 
from the following version, which has been kindly furnished 
for this work by Mr. John V. Barber, of Mifflinburgh, Pa., 
who often heard the story from the lips of one of the heroines, 
Catharine, or Aunt Katy, as she was generally called. 

" On the 14th of July, 1780, the date we get from pension 
papers, Baltzer Klinesmith, with his daughters, Catharine 
and Elizabeth, were harvesting in a field almost surrounded 
by forest. When near the edge of the timber, the girls 
being some distance off, he was shot, but was able to call to 
the girls to hide themselves. The Indians scalped Kline- 
smith and soon found the others. There Avere three Indians, 
an old man and two young men. They made their way to the 
spring north of New Berlin, where they remained over night. 
In the evening the old Indian washed the scalp and held it 
up before the girls, making sport of it. Then Elizabeth told 
her sister that she would kill him, but Katy tried to persuade 
her not to do so, on account of the great danger. She replied 
that she did not care for the consequences, the Indian must 
die. In the morning the young men went off down the valley. 
They had stolen a good many things, amongst them a sack of 
flour and an old axe. The old man told the girls, as it com- 
menced to rain, to cover the flour with bushes. He sat with 
his head against a tree and the axe near at hand. Elizabeth, 

144 



APPENDIX. 145 

in gathering the brush, worked near the axe, but the Indian 
motioned her away with his hand. Finally he closed his eyes, 
and the girl got near enough to secure the weapon. As she 
raised it to strike with the butt end, Katy, who was closely 
watching her, motioned with her hand to turn it around and 
strike with the edge, which the other did, splitting the old 
man's head open to the chin. There was a log fort about 
three-quarters of a mile east of White Springs, where Joseph 
Chambers, who married Mary Barber, afterwards lived. 
Elizabeth, although the younger of the two, was the faster 
runner, and soon reached the fort. Catharine became bewil- 
dered, and was soon discovered by one of the Indians who was 
returning, and who shot at her a great distance in the woods. 
The ball struck her a little to the left of the backbone, and 
came out at the left breast, just missing the vital parts. She 
crawled through the brush and under a large fallen tree. 
The Indian ran over her hiding place without seeing her. The 
people from the fort soon gave the alarm and started after the 
Indians. One of them seeing her under the log, raised his 
gun, thinking she was an Indian. She held up her apron, 
with which she had closed the wound to stanch the blood, and 
thus saved her life. 

"Aunt Katy was a great friend of my mother's, and as her 
house was not a hundred rods from our house, she spent a good 
part of her time with us, and many a time she told the story 
to us children. Once, I remember, in our hall, she opened 
her dress and showed mother the mark of the ball, the dent 
being large enough for a bullet to lie in when she was stand- 
ing. 

"She first married Daniel Campbell, who died in 1793, 
leaving two children, Ann and John. Afterwards she mar- 
ried Robert Chambers, by whom she had one daughter, 
Rebecca. Aunt Katy died in February, 1837."

EXTRACTS FROM MISS SARAH BARBER'S MEMOIR. 

In the year 1830, Miss Sarah Barber, daughter of Robert 
and Sarah Taylor Barber, prepared a journal of her recollec- 
tions of Columbia and its early settlers, which included a brief 
history of the Barber family and an account of her grand- 
father, Robert Barber, Sheriff. As these incidents were 
described from memory, it is not surprising that the manu- 
script contained a number of inaccuracies, such as the state- 
ment that her grandfather had followed a seafaring life and 
been a political prisoner in French dungeons. It contained 
many facts of interest, however, and much accurate informa- 
tion. The sketch was first printed in the Columbia Spy, in 
the year 1832, and was afterwards reproduced, in a modified 
form, in several historical publications, so that the diflTerent 
versions disagreed in many points, and the errors contained 
in the original were increased and perpetuated. It is- the 
object of this book to eliminate, so far as j)ossible, these mis- 
takes. This the writer has been enabled to do in a great 
measure through the assistance of Lieut.-Col. Samuel Wright 
and Samuel Evans, Esq., of Columbia, who have kindly placed 
their notes at his disposal, and referred him to the original 
documents, in which the correct statements of the events in 
question are to be found. Miss Barber's account of the atro- 
cious massacre of the peaceable Conestoga Indians, by a band 
of ruffians and cut-throats from Paxton township, is particu- 
larly interesting, and we have every reason to believe it to be 

146 



APPENDIX. 147 

true in all essential details. The following extracts taken from 
this memoir are believed to be substantially correct : — 

"The journey (from Chester to the Susquehanna) in those 
days was thought a very great undertaking, the country being 
uninhabited except by the Indians, who had their cabins scat- 
tered in many places. What a grand sight it must have been, 
our noble river pursuing its undisturbed course, or only 
slightly ruffled by the Indian canoe, the shore covered with 
lofty trees which had stood since the creation. Such was this 
place when three families from Chester came to make their 

home in the wilderness Robert Barber kept the 

250 acres next the lower hills (near where Columbia now 
stands). He came from Yorkshire, I think. He settled 
further from the river than the others. He built the brick 
house now occupied by John Hinkle. His first small house 
was gone before my recollection. He was oneof the Burgesses 
of Chester under William Penn's government. He was 
Sheriff of Lancaster County, and it was intended that the seat 
of justice should be here ; in consequence of this intention 
there was a prison built near his house. I remember it well — 
a strong-looking log building — was pulled down not many years 
since. James, afterwards Earl of Anglesea,^ was once confined 
there. His story is well known, and may be found in Proud's 
History of Pennsylvania. Robert Barber had several chil- 
dren ; the oldest son, John, was killed by the Indians, some- 
where near where Pittsburgh now stands. He had gone to 
trade in fur — what w^as called trapping. His other sons 
settled on the land, but it is all owned by the Stricklers but 
about sixty acres, which was the share of the second son, 
Robert, w^ho married Sarah, daughter of Samuel Taylor. He 
had ten children, but at this time, 1830, they are all gone but 
one son and two daughters ; the daughters live on the place, 
in the house which their father built 65 years since. I well

148 THE BARBER FAMILY. 

remember the old house which their father lived in before he 
built the present brick house ; some of the wood of the old 
house is now in the brick house. There were no pine boards, 
as in the present day. The joists, window and door frames 
are of oak ; what little pine that is in it were logs which were 
found in the river, and sawed at a mill on what was called 
Barber's Run, where Nathaniel Barber once had a sawmill. 
There was a fulling mill on the same stream, kept by Samuel 
Barber, another brother 

" One of the first things in my recollection is hearing an 
account of the massacre of the poor Conestoga Indians, which 
took place in the 12th month, 1763 — three years before my 
birth. The great interest which everyone who I heard speak 
of it took in it seemed to fix it in my memory at a very early 
age. I thought to have heard some particulars from my 
brother, who well remembers it, but the recollection was so 
affecting to him, tho' it is nearly 70 years since, that I for- 
bore to ask him all I intended, but I think the principal 
parts are too strongly fixed in my memory to admit of mis- 
take. They were called the Conestoga Indians, but I think 
there were some among them of the Shawnee Tribe. There 
was one, ' Shawnee John,' and the little run where they had 
their huts is still called ' Shawnee Run ' ; they were here when 
the first white settlers came ; they w^ere entirely peaceable, and 
seemed as much afraid of the other Indians as the whites were; 
they often had their cabins here by the little mill ; my oldest 
brother and sister used to be whole days with them 

" The government of Pennsylvania now got into other 
hands, and the peaceable nature of Penn's administration was 
changed to one of more hostile nature towards the poor natives. 
The Friends did their best to keep peace in every way, but 
there were too many against them, and it was thought by 
many that they should all be destroyed. Accordingly, a com- 
pany from Paxton Township, under the name of ' Paxton 
Boys,' agreed to come by night and destroy the poor Indians 



APPENDIX. 149 

at their town Such was the situation of things, 

when, a very cold morning in the 12th month, 1763, a German 
neighbor came to my father's house requesting him to go with 
him in pursuit of some persons who had been at his house the 
preceding night, whom he termed robbers ; they had behaved 
in a very disorderly manner, such as melting the pewter on the 
stove, and other things of the same kind. My father, sup- 
posing they had been some persons in a frolic, advised him to 
take no notice of it. He was scarcely gone when five or six 
men came in ; they had guns Avhich they left outside ; they 
were very cold — their coats covered with snow and sleet. I 
don't think my father was personally acquainted with any of 
them, though he knew from what part of the county they came. 
He made up the fire to warm them, and according to the 
hospitality of the times treated them with the customary 
morning refreshments. While they warmed themselves they 
enquired why the Indians were suffered to live peaceably 
there. My father told them they were quite inoffensive, living 
on their own land and injuring no one. They asked what 
would be the consequence were they destroyed. My father 
told them he thought they would be as liable to punishment 
as if they had destroyed so many whites. They were of a 
different opinion. At length they went away without telling 
what they had been about. In the meantime my two brothers,^ 
ten and twelve years old, had been out looking at the stran- 
gers' horses (as such boys are wont to do), which were hitched 
in a wagon shed which stood near the door ; after they were 
gone, my brothers said they had tomahawks tied to their sad- 
dles, and they were bloody ; that they also had Christie's gun 
(Christie was a little Indian boy about the age of my brothers ; 
they were much attached to him ; he was their playmate in 
all their sports — made their bows and arrows, and was, indeed, 
as a brother). While they wondered what it could mean, a

messenger came giving information of the dreadful deed. My 
father and some others went down to see them buried — shock- 
ing, indeed, was the sight — the dead bodies lay among the 
rubbish of their burnt cabins like half-consumed logs. I 
think there were fourteen murdered. It was said that at the 
beginning of the slaughter a mother had placed her child — 
almost an infant — under a barrel, charging it to make no 
noise ; a shot was fired through the barrel, which broke the 
child's arm, and it still kept silent. I do not vouch for the 
truth of this, but I have often heard it told with the other 
parts of the shocking story. The rest of the Indians, I think, 
to the number of twenty-eight, who were absent from the town 
at the first slaughter, were collected together and put into the 
jail in Lancaster for safety, as it was said, but the merciless 
wretches, not satisfied with their first work, went thither and 
(I cannot say in spite of opposition, for it does not appear 
there was any made) broke open the jail, and cruelly, and in 
a shocking manner, destroyed them all — old men, women and 
children."

Letter written by John Barber, son of Robert and Sarah 
Taylor Barber, at the age of twenty-three, shortly after the 
battle of Long Island, the first pitched battle of the Revolu- 
tion, in which he participated. It was addressed to " Mr. 
Robert Barber, Sr., in Hempfield. Forwarded by Capt 
Hamilton." 

" West Chester (N. Y.), Sept. 23, 1776. 

" Dear Father : — I sopose you are not well pleased with mee 
for not riteing before, but I can give you the sattesfactiou of 
letting you know that I am very well at presant hoping theas 
lines may find you the same. Wea lay at preasant in such an 
out of the way place that wea scearce hear any news at all. 
Wea have been hear about three weeks, which wea think a 
great while, as wee have not been neer so long at any place 
before. West Chester is about seventeen miles from York. 
Wee had a sad bury on Long Island, but I dare say you can 
tell the particulars better than wee can tho' wee ware in the 
midst of it, as wee hear many differant ways of it. Wee ware 
about three miles from our lines when the engagement began, 
which was about one o'clock in the morning and it lasted 
till four in the afternoon. Wee lost Leutenant Paterson and 
John Chambers and four more wee sopose to have been killed 
as wee saw them neer the breastworks. The euemi had got 
quite 'round us but wee had the heels of them and got. The 
first firing wee herd was the Delaware Battalion and about a 
thousand regulars which landed the same night by the nar- 
rows wee sopose to devert us a little and indeed they had like

to have deverted us too long for before wee ware got to our 
lines they ware within gunshot 'round from another quarter. 
How they got 'round I cannot say. Some say it was by 
trechary and blame Lord Sterling. 

" The third night after we flitted of Long Island and left 
them all our fine fortifications. AYee got over the East River 
about four o'clock in the morning. It hapned very well for 
us, for about nine in the evining the fog gathered so thick that 
the enemy could not see us, for if they had, they would have 
made sad work. They did not discover our retreat til about 
nine in the morning. There came a party down to the shore 
and fired on sum boats of the last that came over and killed 
one or two. Our batallion marched about a mile out of town 
and encamped. It would have been imposable for our men 
to have kept York, after having given up the lins on Long 
Island. I often wondred at our people for leaving the lins 
as they ware very strong. 

" As for the last engagement on York Island I can give very 
little account. Wee could hear the platoons and cannon, but 
I beleave our peeple got the better of them. Wee hear that 
part of York is burnt. Wee saw a very large fier that way, 
but cant bee sure. Wee staled but one day and a night at 
York after wee left Long Island. Wee live very well and 
peaceble heer as wee are a good wais from any water whare 
the men of war can come up. 

" Christopher Taylor has been poorly, but is getting better. 
All the river boys are well. Sam Boude is but poorly yet, 
but hee is getting some better. Our people are very much 
scattered so it is hard to tell what number wee have. Wee 
have but about 30 men fit fur duty in our company. I am 
very glad that Captin Barber's * Company had not to march 
as it would have been very hurtful to the nighberhood. Chris- 
topher remembers his kind love to Mamy, give my kind love 

^ James Barber, his uncle.
